Will definitely stay here again if I'm in Arusha
The hotel staff is very friendly and provide useful information about Arusha. Though the hotel room is a bit outdated, but it is spacious and clean.

Great hotel to crash in
Very good spacious room. We got here at 9pm at night after 36 hours of flights and buses. Glad that the hotel did a good dinner. Mosquito nets were useless as they did not close.
